This satisfying vegetarian sweet potato soup is inspired by the flavors of West African peanut soup. We like the added zip of hot green chiles, but they can sometimes be very spicy. It's best to take a small bite first and add them to taste. Try chopped peanuts and scallions for a different garnish. Serve with a mixed green salad with vinaigrette.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Prick sweet potatoes in several places with a fork. Microwave on High until just cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.

    Advertisement
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until it just begins to brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute more. Stir in juice, green chiles, ginger and allspice. Adjust the heat so the mixture boils gently; cook for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, peel the sweet potatoes and chop into bite-size pieces. Add half to the pot. Place the other half in a food processor or blender along with broth and peanut butter. Puree until completely smooth. Add the puree to the pot and stir well to combine. Thin the bisque with water, if desired. Season with pepper. Heat until hot. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.

Tips

To make ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Thin with water before reheating, if desired.

Wounderful recipe My son loved a sweet potato peanut butter soup a friend let him try and wanted me to make it. After waiting too long for her to get him the recipe I decided to go on line and take a stab at it. I made it tonight and almost didn't try it as it HATE sweet potatoes. However everyone in the family including my son's friend who was over raved about it so I got brave. Unbelievable good! I had a second helping. Didn't have vegetable broth so used a tablespoon of salt substitute vegetable seasoning and water added a few jalapenos since my chilies were mild. It was great. My son and husband added sliced banana half way through their bowls and declared it wonderful. I didn't get that brave but we all added a few extra peanuts for some crunch which was good. We will definitely be making this again. Pros: Healthy delicious easy to make Cons: None Read More

Success! With Modfications I loosely followed this recipe sticking with the same portions of potatoes onions ginger and garlic. But I omitted the green chilies in favor of a lovely dried red pepper that I toasted in the pan with the onions and spices. I also added a roasted red pepper that I skinned. And instead of V8 I used a can of crushed tomatoes and added about 4 cups of homemade chicken stock. Enough liquid to cook the potatoes in broth instead of microwaving. About 30 minutes. At the end I added about a 1/4 of peanut butter just before puree-time. To finish I topped with a dollop of greek yogurt and chives. It worked. Pros: Creamy & Filling Read More

My whole family hated it I followed this recipe almost to the letter - except I used a can of diced tomatoes that I pureed in the blender instead of the tomato/V8 juice - and my entire family hated it. It looked unappetizing (vomit anyone?) and it tasted not much better. Too much ginger wrong spicing I don't know... it just wasn't good. Maybe some coconut milk would help but I don't want to waste any more ingredients to try to salvage this pot. Too bad.:( Read More

Didn't do it for me. This soup sounded delicious but it just didn't come together for me. The canned green chiles were bitter and off-putting and the tomato was too strong. I should have gone with my first instinct to just use a finely chopped Thai pepper instead of canned chiles which I did in the end to try to save this soup. I also added a drop of honey which helped offset the bitterness. I still like the idea of this soup and especially its nutritional content and I may try this again with some adjustments. I liked another reviewer's idea to roast the sweet potatoes to bring out their flavor (in fact I cubed and steamed mine instead of microwaving which used an extra pot but didn't take much longer). Pros: Nutritious vegetable combination with protein from peanut butter. Cons: Flavors weren't complimentary. Read More

Hearty and Healthy Love this soup! I'm not really a soup person but this one is my favorite by far. Have made it a few times now. I keep it really chunky and don't use a blender (because I don't have one) and so all my potatoes are diced or smashed. I also used crushed canned tomatoes and extra chunky peanut butter. Flavor keeps forever and is really satisfying. The flavors are kind of polarizing to some. People who hate cilantro or are weirded out by the peanut butter will find it disgusting. But I thought it was fantastic going to west africa in december and can only hope the food is this good. Pros: Filling and Unique Cons: Can't serve to everyone Read More

He cooks jasmine rice and makes rice balls to eat with it (mash the rice against the sides of the pot and roll into balls with a bit of cold water).

Different I made this last night for dinner but had to adjust for what I had on hand. I used one serrano chile since I didn't have any canned chiles. I also pureed the whole pot and didn't have any cilantro for garnish. I felt it needed a crunchy texture (not mushy) so I added some Goldfish crackers as I ate it. I thought the soup was okay; my husband (not an adventurous eater) didn't even finish his. Read More

Wonderful! I made this for a second time; the first time I followed the recipe exactly but I found that the consistency of the onions and garlic didn't mix well with the bisque aspect of the dish. I decided to puree the whole pot after I mixed in the sweet potatoe puree and then I added the sweet potato chunks. It was superb! I also added a dollup of sour cream in additon to the cilantro. Perfection! Pros: This recipe is so hearty and the flavors are so comforting Cons: Peeling the sweet potatoes after they are cooked is a little bit of a challenge Read More

Dee-lish! My husband cannot eat foods that are too spicy but he loves this combination of flavors so I roasted the potatoes to bring out their sweetness before proceeding as the recipe directed. I used about 2/3 of the chiles called for in the recipe. Without the heat of the chiles the soup needed a flavor boost so I added some finely minced candied ginger and freshly ground coriander and cardamon. After adding the diced potatoes I gave the entire soup a rough puree with an immersion blender. I don't think the soup is now authentically African but my husband had a taste and gave it a two thumbs up rating of awesome. Pros: Easy Cons: None Read More

Not quite authentic but good I am Nigerian so I eat/make peanut soup a lot. We usually never put cilantro in it so I was skeptical when I saw this recipe called for it. I personally didn't notice any added bonus by adding the cilantro but it was still good nonetheless. Old school peanut soup used grounded peanut so I prefer to use chunky peanut butter rather than smooth I also use tomato paste/puree with water rather than tomato juice (it's cheaper than tomato juice and you don't have to worry about buying low sodium since tomato puree has only trace amounts of sodium to start with) and I blend all the sweet potato instead of just some. I also use cayenne pepper instead of green chiles usually. Tried it with the green chiles this time. I think by adding the chiles and cilantro you move it away from Africa and more towards Asia not as authentic but still a good copy. Read More

Yum tasty! We made this last week and it was super good! I just had abdominal surgery so I'm on a liquid/mushy diet and was just so sick of all the standard soups. I came across this and decided to give it a shot. Yea! So flippin tasty! And easy! And inexpensive! The people who say it's too much pb are probably using jif or something of the sort. This is one of those times you should use natural. Go to the coop and get some of the fresh ground stuff. Personally I hate cilantro so I used scallions and chopped peanuts as the garnish and it was excellent. Just to see how it turns out I'm going to try this with pumpkin instead of potatoes to save some more calories:) Not sure if I can update the review but if I can I'll let you know how it turns out.

If they're soft enough this will save you the annoying task of cleaning a blender or food processor. If I make it again I'll use less peanut butter (it's a little sweet) and more chiles.

As others had mentioned I cut back on the peanut butter by about half. It becomes the predominant taste if you use the full amount. I also used homemade chicken stock and canned tomatoes instead of the vegetable stock and juice because that is what I had. This is also very good when the salt is kept down at any chance. You can add it at the table if needed but it doesn't need it for our tastes. I too blended the whole pot with an immersion blender. After initial service as a soup another use for this could be a simmering sauce for skinless chicken. As mentioned before serve the whole lot over rice or noodles or maybe even potatoes. Read More

Just tried this recipe for the first time and I love it! Haven't tried it on the rest of the family yet but I can always freeze it in smaller portions. I worked within the confines of what I had on hand so a can of tomato puree and equal amount of water was used in lieu of juice. Frozen turkey/vegetable soup stock was used instead of vegetable broth. I DID have hot green chilies from New Mexico in my freezer thanks to my sister so that was great! I used a generous amount of chunky all natural no-salt p. butter and two cloves of garlic. Didn't have fresh Cilantro and any other form is a waste of time so I sprinkled a little cinnamon sugar on the top swirled it to make it look fancy and then sprinkled some roasted peanuts on top! YUM! Read More

I disagree with the comments to halve the peanut butter. If you're actually using smooth natural peanut butter half a cup perfectly compliments the soup and is in no way overpowering. If you're using Jif or something you should probably reduce the amount. But natural peanut butter isn't as strong-tasting as the processed stuff so it works well at the full amount in this recipe.

I followed this recipe almost exactly. I never really measure so I just eyeballed all of the ingredients. I used V-8 rather than tomato juice/soup. I also added 2 or 3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for a little extra heat. I hate cilantro so I used scallions as a garnish. Although the soup looks and seems like it would be unappetizing I thought it was truly unique and tasted fantastic. I've eaten it for 3 days in a row! It is filling and satisfying. I used Smart Balance peanut butter and I did not find the PB taste to be overwhelming at all. Like others mentioned I think this would be good as a sauce or served over rice.

First of all I don't have a microwave so i roasted the sweet potatoes with allspice salt and pepper @ 450 for about 25 min which added a deeper flavor over all. Seconded It's much easier to add the broth to all the ingredients and when time to blend just put the sweet potatoes in the blender and add the stock & PB. definitely save 1/4 of the potatoes for texture. Third I played with the flavor doubling the allspice and using 'sriracha' instead of chilies. I also added more ginger which i thought was key to complementing/toning down the PB taste. i garnished with cilantro and chives. yum. crushed peanuts would be nice too. stock: 2 1/2 c. organic tomato juice 2 1/2 c. water 1 veggie bullion cube.

I always told my husband that I don't like sweet potatoes but after he made this amazing soup I became a converted fan of the spud! The flavors blend perfectly - there is no dominant aroma or taste despite the non-traditional ingredient list. We've made and served it twice now and each time the guests begged for the recipe. It's visually beautiful as well and clearly a winner for formal dinner entertaining.

Everyone who has tried this soup has asked for the recipe. We're making if for Christmas Eve.

In addition to the allspice I also sprinkled a little nutmeg in. This is one of our favorite meals now! Pros: thick flavorful Cons: may not be for everyone Read More
